First Chance Race – Saturday January 1, 2022

Celebrate the new year with the first ski race of 2022. The race will be at the Vasaloppet Nordic Ski Center in Mora. Specifics of the race course and length will be determined as the snowmaking season progresses. More news to follow.
This race is not only a fun way to kick off the ski season, it also provides skiers the opportunity to get in some training for the 2022 ski race season. The race begins at 11 am at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center in Mora, Minnesota.
Registration is $20 through December 31, 2021, or $30 on the morning of the race.

Snowmaking Season Has Arrived.

We are delighted to see that Mother Nature has kicked off the snowmaking season with the first, measurable snowfall. Now our incredible team of volunteer snow farmers will pick up the pace as they get ready to assemble and fire up the snowmaking operation.

The great news is that you too can help with the snowmaking. Snowmaking is an expensive operation and your donations are greatly appreciated. This Thursday 11/18 is Give to the Max Day, a one-day “giving holiday” and we hope you will consider donating to our snowmaking campaign just as the snowmaking season is beginning.

Vasaloppet USA is a 501(c)3 organization so all contributions are tax deductible, plus 100% of the proceeds will be used to cover operating expenses including equipment maintenance, electricity, gasoline, and other out-of-pocket costs, so our trail team volunteers can prepare an amazing ski trail system at the Nordic Center for all to enjoy throughout the entire ski season as well as for our 50th ski race.

Let the ski season begin.
